May 22, 2018
As a thank-you to our loyal IAC Express readers, we will periodically publish extra editions such as this one, with new "Ask the Experts" Q&As answered by CDC experts.
IAC extends thanks to our experts: Andrew T. Kroger, MD, MPH; Candice L. Robinson, MD, MPH; Raymond A. Strikas, MD, MPH, FACP, FIDSA; and JoEllen Wolicki, BSN, RN, all from the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Editor's note: The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recently published two new statements on hepatitis B-containing vaccines—a comprehensive statement in January 2018 and a statement addressing the use of adjuvanted hepatitis B vaccine (Heplisav-B, Dynavax) in April 2018. The “Ask the Experts: Hepatitis B” topic on the IAC website (www.immunize.org/askexperts/experts_hepb.asp) has been revised to reflect information published in these two documents. This special edition of IAC Express contains some of the new or significantly revised Q&As available on our website.
